Culture

Assured Guaranty seeks to foster and maintain strong ethical standards and a reputation as a business that conducts itself professionally and with a high degree of integrity . In addition, the Company works to provide and support a respectful and inclusive environment that values the abilities of each employee, leading to enhanced engagement, maximizing individual performance, and improving retention.

Our employees play an important role in shaping the culture at Assured Guaranty. Employees can volunteer to serve on the Company’s two employee-led committees: the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Corporate Philanthropy Committee, or join any of our five Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). 

Diversity and Inclusion

Assured Guaranty is committed to building and sustaining a diverse workforce at all levels of our organization and creating an inclusive culture which embraces our differences and effectively utilizes our many and varied talents. Our Diversity and Inclusion Policy defines what we mean by Diversity and Inclusion and articulates our approaches for achieving these goals.

The employee-led Diversity and Inclusion Committee provides input into the Company's approach for achieving a diverse workforce and sustaining an inclusive culture.   

Corporate Philanthropy

Giving is an integral part of our corporate culture. We contribute generously to a broad range of causes through direct donations, matching gifts, and corporate sponsorships. Our Corporate Philanthropy Committee provides our workforce the opportunity to direct philanthropic efforts by selecting charity partners and sourcing employee volunteer activities.

Employee Resource Groups

To create community and encourage employees to engage with and support one another, Assured Guaranty has five ERGs: 
•    African Americans 
•    Asian and Pacific Islander 
•    Women
•    Working parents
•    Young professionals 

The ERGs were selected based on employee feedback; membership in the ERGs is voluntary and open to all employees. Because the ERGs are employee-led, they provide additional opportunities for employees to develop and demonstrate their leadership and organizational skills. The ERGs also provide mentorship, career development training, and assist the Company in its efforts to retain, develop and promote its employees and to foster a more inclusive culture. Throughout the year, the ERGs sponsor various events, firm wide as well as focused for group members. Each ERG is supported by two executive sponsors, a member and an ally, who offer guidance and advocate on behalf of the group.

Learning and Development; Mentoring

We invest in the professional development of our workforce through formal and informal, external and internal, learning opportunities. To support the advancement of our employees, we endeavor to strengthen their knowledge and skills by providing access to training, including in leadership, management, and effective communication skills, mentoring opportunities, as well as tuition reimbursement assistance.

Our collegial and collaborative culture fosters informal mentoring and learning. We augment this with a formal one-on-one mentoring program to provide an additional learning resource for our employees, to facilitate the onboarding of new recruits, and to reinforce connectedness.

Compensation and Benefits

Our compensation and benefits packages are designed to attract and retain people who have the commitment, technical skills, professional discipline and ethical integrity we value.

The Company offers a benefits package designed to promote and support the physical and mental health of our employees as well as their financial security. Benefits may include (but vary by office location): life and health (medical, dental and vision) insurance, retirement savings plans (including Company matches of employee contributions), an employee stock purchase plan, paid time off, paid family leave, an employee assistance program, commuter benefits, tuition reimbursement, fertility and family planning resources, emergency backup child, elder and pet care, reimbursement of health club fees, and corporate matches of an employee's charitable contributions.
